Yikes! I have been gone too long!

Hello strangers!
Where have I been?!

Last time I blogged, I was in my
fifth week (of 15) student teaching.
That seems like FOREVER ago!

Hm... I think the easiest thing for me 
to do is to look at my FaceBook time line
and share all of the events in order.

Since I last typed (09/22/13 to be exact!)
I have been:

Enjoying my Atlanta Braves wins!

Still loving my rescued animals

Constructing Kwakiutl long houses

Still loving Basset hounds

are located in GA, check out:
